Formation of an electronics research and development command will consolidate in a single command the Harry Diamond Laboratories, portions of the Army's Security Agency, and the noncommunications and automatic data processing research, development, and acquisition elements of the U.S. Army Electronics Command. The consolidation is part of a general reorganizational change within the Army to improve its materiel acquisition process by establishing mission-oriented development and logistic centers.

Review of the estimated one-time costs, such as construction and modification costs and personnel-related costs indicated, that the Army's estimates are reasonable. The estimated personnel requirements and annual operation cost reductions also seemed to be reasonable.
